It is an older style home that has an easy feel, some of the house painting / decorating is on the to do list as we get to know what we wish to do, as we only bought it a year ago, but in the meantime have replaced all curtains with fresh, clean and some new curtains and blinds. The bathrooms are spick and span but one day, too will be in line for refurbishment. The kitchen works really well as is and is very spacious and has a ceramic top cooker, new Brandt kitchen fan, brand new Mitsubishi fridge freezer with ice maker, and Bosch dishwasher plus all the normal kitchen items required.

There, the Hot Water beach on the lake edge is truly inviting for those who want to flop and relax in genuine thermal water, Getting AroundCharnwood house is less than 30 minute leisurely walk into the township and a couple of hundred yards to the waters edge.

I hope guests will feel free to ask if they need anything extra. Interaction with GuestsUsually I will be around while guests are staying but I do come and go a lot so if they are hanging out in the sleep out they should get lots of privacy and if I am around I try to let people have as much privacy as possible if that is what they want. However I do enjoy to have a wee catch up with the guests if we happen to cross paths. I would like people to enjoy their stay so will do what I can to make them comfortable. The NeighborhoodWe live in a nice family neighbourhood which is usually quiet. There are young families and retired people as the closest neighbours. They are all fabulous and I couldn't wish for better neibhbours. Getting AroundWe are situated about 45 minutes from Rotorua and are a little over an hour's drive to the mountains and the snow. I am open to negotiation in regards to getting you around Taupo. Have to go into town most days so can work in with guests where possible. There is also a bus service. Once again, depending on work schedule, can negotiate picking up and dropping off at the airport/bus terminal. There is a shuttle service to and from the airport also.

It's the adventure capital of New Zealand with multiple activities on offer - bungy jumping, sky diving, mountain biking, jet boating, fishing, thermal pools, and also 3 golf courses in close proximity. It hosts Ironman in March each year and many other events including the Great Lake Cycle Challenge. Everything you need for a refreshing break is on hand... kick back, relax, and recharge at Rainbow's End! ..from Tourism New Zealand The beautiful Lake Taupo is about the size of Singapore – more of an inland sea really. It was created nearly two thousand years ago by a volcanic eruption so big it darkened the skies in Europe and China. Visit the Craters of the Moon and you'll see evidence of the lake's fiery birth in the geysers, steaming craters and boiling mud pools. At some of Lake Taupo's beaches, swimmers and paddlers can enjoy warm, geothermal water currents. Just north of Lake Taupo you'll find New Zealand's most visited attraction, the magnificent Huka Falls, where more than 220,000 litres of water thunder over the cliff face every second. Taupo is a great lake for water-skiing, sailing and kayaking. The Maori rock carvings at Mine Bay, which can only be seen from the water, make for a great boat trip or kayaking excursion. The forests surrounding the lake offer hiking and mountain biking to suit all levels of experience. But what Taupo is really known for is fishing. The town of Turangi has the largest natural trout fishery in the world. Taupo provides a convenient base for exploring Tongariro National Park, whether it be walking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing (New Zealand's most popular day walk) or skiing at Whakapapa and Turoa ski fields. Great Lake Taupo is centrally located in the middle of the North Island, approximately 3 1/2 hours drive from Auckland and 4 1/2 hours drive from Wellington. There's a genuinely friendly culture here! Guest AccessThere is a lockbox with house keys inside, plus another spare to the back door in case you need it. The code will be supplied when you book. Guests enjoy free use of wireless internet access, also 2 kayaks with life jackets at no extra charge. If you have little ones - Portacot and Highchair also included - Portacot is under the bunk beds in the middle bedroom, highchair in the wardrobe. Interaction with GuestsThis bach is let to you alone and is a self-contained and self-catered house. On most occasions I will not be there to greet you unfortunately as I live in Wellington, so you'll let yourselves in and out again when you leave! I will provide you with the code to the lockbox to let yourselves in once you book. You will enjoy the sole use of 'Rainbow's End' . I will be available by mobile on (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) if you need me, and happy to answer any queries. The NeighborhoodRainbow Point is a quiet, safe neighbourhood. It is a very short walk to the lake edge. Along the lake there is a walking path which extends for several kilometers to Five Mile Bay and to Taupo township. You can swim at the lake edge or simply enjoy the lakeside. Boat ramps are very close and there is also a bar/restaurant (Ploughmans), a dairy and a takeaway just a couple of minutes walk away. The bach is also on a bus route and can take you to Taupo town within 10 to 15 minutes. Linen (bed-linen, towels) supplied. Getting AroundThe Taupo town centre is around 5km - an hour's walk on the Lion's walkway which skirts the lake. Parking is included at the back of the bach or on the roadside. The bach is a very short distance from Taupo airport - under 5km, and there are bus and cab services available. Other Things to NoteThere are not many baches with wifi but this is one of them... keep in contact with friends and business while you are away, also nice to be able to play music on Pandora or something similar using this through the little Sony system.
